I was about to reply: why minify, doesn't mod_deflate have such a
significant effect that any further processing is a waste of time?

But I thought I'd test it before commenting, and I was pleasantly

I tried downloading the dragdrop file from YUI
(, and these were my results:

 - no-mini, no-deflate   : 100kB
 - mini   , no-delate    : 23kB
 - no-mini, deflate      : 22kB
 - mini   , deflate      : 7kB

So yes, I think this module would be very useful indeed, especially (and
I haven't looked at the details) if you are able to join a number of JS
source files and return them as a single request.
